Top 10 reasons why Tony Evers is such an unpopular guy

MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers is one of the least popular governors in the country.

Shocking.

According to Morning Consult  the Democrat’s approval rating, a dismal 45 percent, ranks him toward the bottom, just above Hawaii Gov. David Ige (45 percent), a Democrat with a telescope problem, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (44 percent), a Republican with a COVID problem, and Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (43 percent), an insane liberal who has all kinds of problems.

According to the latest Marquette Law School Poll,  Evers’ job approval rating has plummeted 20 percentage points since his high water mark of 65 percent in March 2020, at the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak.

What makes this governor so unpopular?

Let us count the ways.

  1. He locked down Wisconsin during the first couple of months of the pandemic, throwing hundreds of thousands out of work and separating families and friends in the name of government authority. When the legal clock on Evers’ lockdown expired, he broke the law to extend his power grab.
  2. He forced the workers he displaced into his dysfunctional unemployment system. Tens of thousands of Wisconsinites went for months without unemployment benefits. Many couldn’t even get through to the Department of Workforce Development. Team Evers had no plan to deal with the lockdown he ordered.
  3. He wanted billions of dollars in tax increases even as the state recorded robust surpluses.
  4. He wanted to spend billions more in state revenue on his liberal pet projects despite having an unprecedented amount of federal COVID relief aid at his disposal.
  5. He turned Nixon when a still-unidentified member of his team secretly recorded a conversation with Republican leaders. Team Evers then then attempted to use the recording for political advantage, releasing it to a news outlet that just happened to learn that such a recording existed.
  6. Evers’ People’s Maps Commission, supposedly a nonpartisan assemblage of citizens, was such a failure even his fellow Democrats hated it. The commission came up with maps that cut up minority districts, violating the Voting Rights Act.
  7. His extreme Climate Change agenda would make today’s soaring inflation look like chump change. Evers’ Zero Carbon principles may excite his liberal base with dreams of solar and windmills on every roof and in every backyard, but it collides head-on with Wisconsin’s energy realities.
  8. The ‘Education Governor,’ formerly the state’s public education chief for a decade, has failed Wisconsin’s students in so many ways, but none more than his weak-kneed approach to his teacher union pals. He let educrats and union bullies lock kids out of their classrooms and keep them in failing virtual education systems, defying the science that clearly showed the academic and emotional dangers of a lockout.
  9. Sworn to uphold the constitution, Evers has treated it more like a spent Wendy’s wrapper. During the pandemic, he, his administration and his liberal allies have grotesquely eroded individual liberties, from restricting places of worship to gutting due process for business owners and mask and vaccine resisters.
  10. Evers lit the fuse on a volatile situation in Kenosha, and tried to placate his far left base instead of doing what was in his power to quickly bring law and order back to a riot-ravaged city.

  • Evers is a Democrat and every few cycles Wisconsin has to vote in such ilk to remember why they need to vote Republican.
    Democrats like to tax us, spend our tax dollars on frivolous projects, and divert funds set up to keep our infrastructure maintained – and then raid some other source of our taxes to look good during election cycles.
    Evers screwed up our economy during covid – banning group of workers from working outside in landscaping and I can’t count how many other fool things he did to wreck small businesses in Wisconsin.
    Anyone who would re-elect him is either a fellow traveler of his ilk, or making money off of his bad decisions, or is just plain stupid.

  • WEAC’s sock puppet has amply demonstrated his utter lack of intellectual aptitude. In harmony with the empty-headed *Resident in D.C., Evers’ appalling lack of competence makes him a perfect DUM.

  • It has been apparent from the very beginning that Tony Evers is in far over his head. As such he has resorted to simply following the Democrat Party line and because of that he has failed miserably!
    Like his idol Joe Biden he has shown by his actions that he is not appropriate for the position he holds!
    My suggestion to the citizens of Wisconsin is: Empty the dumpster of the current administrations, both State and Federal!
